WATCH: DMK Stalin Stars In Slapstick Video Yet Again

DMK treasurer MK Stalin allegedly slapped an autorickshaw driver who tried to take a selfie with him.

Stalin was on his second leg of his Namakku Naame (we for ourselves) tour in Gudalur, when the incident occured.

The burly autorickshaw driver came close and tried to take a selfie with Stalin, who was mingling with the public and receiving petitions from them.

n the melee, the autoricksaw driver was about to fall on him when Stalin allegedly slapped him.

A video of the incident went viral in social media today.

However, local DMK workers claimed their leader had just tried to protect himself and had pushed him as the driver was about to fall on him and the video was not what it was made out to be.

This is not the first time that Stalin is allegedly involved in such an incident.

On July 2, Stalin was hard-pressed trying to explain how he was seen slapping a passenger on on route a newly-inaugurated metro train .

"I did not slap him, I only gestured him to move away from a woman whose feet was being trampled by the passenger. My hand (inadvertently) touched his face while gesturing", Stalin told PTI when asked on the issue.
